@ElayneRunner:  Hope you feel better. If her posts bother you so much why do you keep going back to read them?

@ElayneRunner:  I cannot beleive that! Who has to practically beg people to volunteer to be his best man? And then to have that they need to be reliable and purchase their own tux?? It sounds like something they should post to the local job board!

To me it screams that they shouldn’t be getting married as they don’t seem to “get it”… a best man position has an honour to it, you don’t publicly beg for ANYONE to show up… and she seems a bit off kilter with when things need to be done! My wedding is 8 months off and I have just ordered my invitations so she shouldn’t even be looking at invitations for almost another year! 

I would be naughty… I would’ve commented on her invitation status something along the lines of how she is like a year ahead of where she needs to be plus that you found the entire process easy and painless so to message you for advice if she is getting that frustrated on a simple task!

PS. I would be a little mad too if someone posted guidelines for marriage as if they had experience… when they are barely engaged and appear to be rushing their wedding with their boyfriend who cheated on them!

@ElayneRunner:  This story is why I don’t have FB. Its the idealized, edited version of life.

@Bridey77:  +1

Reasons like this is why I deactivated mine almost two years ago, as well.

@op, I always find it funny and strange when couples actually talk to one another through Facebook. To me, her and her fiancé are coming across as the type that are getting married for “the party” aspect. He’s taking volunteers for best man?!?! I’m not sure if I should laugh or feel bad for the guy that he doesn’t have another very close person to him that he can ask.

I wonder if they’d take a rando. I’ve always wondered what it would be like to be a best man, and hey–free food and booze!

Seriously I don’t get these type of threads.  Why bother post about it when it is so easy to either unfriend or block/hide the person’ news feed.

 

@ElayneRunner:  Honestly if it bothers you that much than unfriend her.  It is not the end of the world and really who cares what all her drama is about. Does it really affect your day to day life?

I do have FB but dont use it as much as some people.  No one really wants to know I’m buying bread and peanut butter or that I had lunch at chickfila.

When married couples have conversations on there, it confuses me.  Don’t they live in the same house?  Why the need to FB each other as well?
